I have a Montgomery Ward Power Kraft Lawn Tractor (1994) 18HP/42” mower.
When I idle mower on grass, heat from exhaust burns grass any suggestions for a fix?
I acquired this off of Craigslist, whom ever had before rigged some stuff. I don't know if original equipment, maybe left/took something off?
Any ideals about a deflector?
I think they blow most of the engine heat out past the muffler on them too. My Deere has a shield to deflect some of the heat below the muffler. Maybe you could put a narrow piece of aluminum across below it to deflect more of the hot air out toward the front would help? One thing to watch on that though is make sure the debris does not collect on the heat shield. I have to becareful with mine as the leaves can collect on it in the fall. Have to keep it cleared off to prevent it from possibly catching fire.
